Our mission is to democratize storytelling, allowing anyone with a story idea to create a beautiful visual representation of that story, even if they don't know how to draw.

  • Strong knowledge of web technologies and responsive design
  • Passion for web comics, manga, and video games
  • Experience in gaming industry (a big plus)
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and attention to detail

You may be a good fit if:

  • You love narrative fiction, particularly web comics / manga.
  • You've worked on a game before.

About Storyboarder

Storyboarder is a tool and a platform for anyone to create, share, and sell webcomics.

In East Asia, the webcomic (or digital manga) industry is an $12B market and rapidly growing to the rest of the world. Webtoon, the largest company in the space, generates $100M / month in revenue. However, their addressable market is limited by their content creators, who need know how to draw. Readers are desperate for a greater variety of stories in webcomics.

Through years of working with filmmakers, we’ve built extremely easy to use storyboarding software that has 700K users. We’re democratizing visual storytelling to everyone. We’re working on the next generation that, through advances in video game interfaces, ubiquitous 3D compute, and AI, will allow anyone to easily create scenes, pose characters, to create webcomics.

Storyboarder is co-founded by Charles Forman who founded OMGPOP (S06) which sold to Zynga for $200M, a top YC exit.

Storyboarder is backed by Y Combinator (W23), David Karp (Tumblr Founder), Andrew Kortina (Venmo Founder), and other product focused investors.
